After it's successful first series, with Nerine Tassie crowned as the winner, Sky Arts have opened applications for Landscape Artist of the Year 2016.

The Sky Arts Landscape Competition, produced by Storyvault Films, is an evolution of the Portrait Artist of the Year. It's in association with the National Trust to showcase the love and delight that the British countryside has offered artists for so many years. The upcoming series will be filmed at National Trust properties across the country in June and July 2016. Exact details  will be released in early 2016, so watch this space!

The popular duo Frank Skinner and Joan Bakewell will return to present, and the familiar judges Tai Shan Schierenberg, Kathleen Soriano and Kate Bryan will also be judging this series.


The winner of Landscape Artist of the Year 2016 will be awarded a £10,000 commission and £500 to spend on art materials at Cass Art.
